SAGA Fellow SY19-20 (Chicago, New York City)Job viewed 467 times.
SAGA Fellows are full-time tutors who devote themselves to a service-year to build lasting relationships with students and their families. SAGA recruits highly talented recent college graduates, career changers or retirees–anyone dedicated to social justice and looking for a profound service experience in helping to dramatically transform the academic trajectory of students from high-need communities.
SAGA Fellows commit to a ten-month program of full-time tutoring at one of our locations in an urban school district.
As a SAGA Fellow, you will:
Develop tutoring skills. You’ll receive in-depth training in tutoring techniques and in managing student behavior, and you’ll receive constant daily feedback to help you improve as a tutor.
Tutor students. You’ll spend one school year working with the same caseload of students, serving as their mentor and helping them achieve specific academic goals.
Build relationships. In addition to strong relationships with your students, you’ll communicate regularly with their families to create the most successful and supportive learning environment for your pupils.
In order to be considered, we ask that candidates currently have their Bachelors degree. All majors are welcomed.
